Cinnamon Toast Crunch Chicken

I recently posted one of the best chicken recipes ever, Cap’n Crunch Chicken. Since it was not only a big hit in my house but a huge hit with my readers I decided to make Cinnamon Toast Crunch Chicken. Cinnamon Toast Crunch is our favorite cereal so we knew that coating chicken with it would taste fabulous.
